Benriach The 12 year old 

To craft the Benriach Twelve, the spirit undergoes a meticulous maturation process across three distinct cask types: sherry casks, bourbon barrels, and port casks, for a minimum of twelve years. Following this maturation period, the whisky extracted from each cask is skillfully blended to produce a refined, sherry-forward single malt characterized by nuances of baked fruit, maple honey, and cocoa. This harmonious blend culminates in a perfectly balanced expression, marked by a lingering sultana and spiced mocha finish.

About the Distillery...

Benriach is a Speyside distillery located very close to Elgin. It was built by the same people who built nearby Longmorn distillery. Just two years after it was built the Pattison crisis happened and the distillery closed down. For 65 long years the distillery laid silent only with its maltings being used to supply the Longmorn distillery.

The distillery re opened in 1965 and produced spirit mostly for blends. After another couple of changes in ownership the distillery was acquired by the Benriach Distillery Company Limited. Under that ownership the whisky gained popularity among serious whisky drinkers. Benriach, Glenglassaugh and Glendronach distilleries were purchased by BrownForman in 2016.

The style of spirit produced at Benriach is predominantly fruity. Medium size pot stills and a short fermentation period contribute to it.
